beneath the surface

Crystal's mom was a selfish manipulative user. and all about herself. If it's possible. I despised her even more by the end of the story. The reveal of evil and good was a bit of a surprise. I enjoyed the journey. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job.

Coming of age supernatural tale with adventure

This was a great supernatural coming of age story with some romance and a whole lot of mystery. Crystal feels trapped in the family she was born into. She feels like her mother doesn't care and her father just goes along with her mother. There are expectations on her that she doesn't feel are fair. She is being forced into a marriage she doesn't want. When she decides to trust the boy she has a crush on at school that's when everything seems to blow up. She realizes that she is more powerful than she thought. And truths come out that hurt her and also show her that she is stronger than she thinks. I loved this story from start to finish. As I read/listened there were surprises hitting me left and right. I had no idea what was going to happen next! This story had great action and adventure. It also had a great message about choosing your own path. And really I didn't know who to root for at times. I can't wait to continue on in this series. This narrator really brought the characters to life and her voice was the voice of Crystal. I highly suggest this to supernatural and fantasy fans. You'll become hooked like I am.

Mysterious Forest Magical Symbols

Great Book loved the mystery. To find a symbol that opens a whole new world to her and then find out that she is in a prophecy. What a way to start this series. Witches and werewolves falling in love and fulfilling destiny. #AudioBookObsession

Good introductory story

While I feel this story was rushed with the character and world development lacking in some areas due to the quick speed of the story, it is well worth the time. While the story is a tale of magical beings most of the story is mainly based in the real world which makes the main character relatable though perhaps a bit too realistic for a teenage girl. ;)

In any case, you should certainly give the sample a listen and give this audiobook a try.

Great

This was a great start to the series, I liked Crystal, the main character, she is a witch and just wanted to be in control of her own life, but her mother had other ideas. She is a very strong willed character. We also have a prophecy, and shifters both wolf and dragon! It has everything you would want in a YA fantasy.
Some of the story seemed a bit rushed but other parts flowed so well. The world building was fantastic and the narrator was exceptional. Bring on the second in the series!

Enchanting

Wicked Forest, the first book in the hidden word is an enchanting fantasy, with interesting characters. Despite the length, the content of the plot is ample, and the premise is well-developed. The main character, Crystal, is a young witch who is thrown into a magical world, and she has to find a way to survive. Wicked Forest can be enjoyed by all ages but an ideal choice of YA listeners.

Winona Owen does a great job with the narration and portrayal of the characters' personalities. I'm definitely going to listen to the second book in the series. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Enchanting

E.J Bennett (a new author for me) wrote a wonderful story with great imagination. The tale is Enchanting and gripping with twists and turns that kept me intrigued. Cliffhanger ending alert!
Winona Owen (a new narrator for me) took a couple of chapters for me to gel with, a 4 star is given as I felt her voices between characters could have been a little clearer, but overall her narration was great

... Book 2 please!

Simply brilliant.

I was given a free copy of this book and I'm leaving an honest and voluntary review.

This book was thoroughly enjoyable, a nice tale of magic, prophecy and a young girls future hanging in the balance, and some prophecy's have danger that comes with them. Crystal is thrown into a new world, can she survive.
The story had my attention from the get go, taking me on a magical journey.
The narration is great, giving life to the story, bringing each character to life, with a uniqueness that's suits thier individualailty.

🎧 Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

In this coming of age story we find lies of the past generations of witches, secrets held by Crystal’s parents, an arranged marriage, betrayal by the betrothed, a hidden world, and Crystal who only wants normality, in the Hidden World Series book one.
Winona Owen did a great job with this intriguing storyline.
